Both £5 each.
I use the steel plate together with the fine mesh wire. Works well. Havent tried them independent yet, but the mesh will probably work on it's own. No idea whether the holes in the steel plate are small enough to do so. I should really do an experiment and report back to you lot.
Yes - please keep updated.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a good brew and much prefer 'proper' coffee, but there's nothing inherently wrong with instant.
